The contributor list is full of anime girls and I'm vaguely aware that there's some correlation between that and white supremacy... They have a code of conduct, but the readme itself has pics of busty anime girls.
So, do any of my followers have experience with the community/codebase? Would you recommend it?
Part of my motivation is that I'd like to have control over my own federation policy so that I can use the federated timeline without having to scroll past white supremacist conspiracy theories, so good moderator controls are an important feature.
just to be clear, I get that the developers are Japanese, I'm just trying to make sure that's the main reason.
@pea thanks, @dansup had pointed dolphin out to me a while back, but I forgot about it. It might be nice to let a few friends use my server for their accounts, but I'm not sure that hypothetical use-case justifies jumping through the hoops of setting up outgoing email. If dolphin works without it I'll probably go with that.
@ansuz Misskey is fully Japanese. Maybe overkill for personal use?
@Gargron What would you recommend for personal use?
@neon I assume there are, but I tend to prefer projects where the developers/community actively adopt a stance of making them unwelcome. I'm definitely in the same situation of not being able to follow the japanese posts, but the platform's features seem quite nice. I guess I'll find out what moderation controls are in place if/when I set it up.
@ansuz Misskey is a japanese project by a japanese developer(s), so, by definition it has absolutely nothing to do with white supremacy :-)
@halcek I get what you're saying and would agree if white supremacists were particularly known for holding worldviews that were internally consistent.
From the outside I can only tell that they speak Japanese, not that they are Japanese. I've stumbled across some pretty weird (and extremely racist) subcultures online, so at this point I just prefer to ask before involving myself in a community.
For a particularly bizarre example see this article: https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2020/06/my-little-pony-nazi-4chan-black-lives-matter/613348/
@halcek In any case, thanks for the recommendation. I'll take a look at microblog.pub, even though I'd still prefer something js-based for hacking purposes.
